good morning, america. and d ere is casey anthony? a trail of clues to where she's fled.. what she's doing now after her high-security release. and the picture that shows how she really feels. violent storms take down an outdoor stage where cheap trick was performing. the latest from the survivors who dug out of the mangled mess. the u.s. women's soccer team coming close, losing in the times to japan. one of the most dramatic world cup finals, ever. >> a brokenhearted usa, who thought they had it won twice, are beaten. >> japan's big win, now, giving that nation new hope.
and super dog. the ten-pound crime fighter caught on camera. how he took a bite out of crime. he's here live this morning. good morning, everyone. seeing poco, i have a craving for taco bell. george is off today. spending a letle time with his family. josh is right here by my side. oh, that game. >> this close. this close, twice. of course, the u.s. women falling, in stunning fashion, to japan in the world cup final yesterday. we saw the agony of defeat. but we have to remember, we have seen the thrill of victory, twice before. first, against brazil and then against france.
i think something that occurred to me yesterday, what we saw yesterday was the thrill of defeat. if you could watch that game yesterday and go back to the ticket booth and say, i want my money back, that wasn't enough for me, you got a very higigbar for drama and excitement and entertainment. >> deborah roberts is there. we'll have a live report from her ininust a little moment. thankfully the temperatures aren't as bad there as they are here. >> they are bad in almost every state across the country. off the florida coast, take a look at what's f fming this morning. tropical storm developing and developing rapidly. it has a name, bret. it has sprung in the last 24 hours. we got to talk more about the scorching temperatures across the majority of the country. moving east, uniyi yunji de nies, smack-dab in the middle of texas. good morning, yunji.
>> reporter: good morning, robin. this is the 17th-straight day of 100-degree temperatures. wild fires burning farther east. all of this dry brush is ready to ignite. it doesn't get much hotter than this. whether it's a good splash of water to the face, a quick break to wipe away the sweat or trying to hydrateteway the heat. people are desperate for relief. as temperatures rise, water levels are falling, fast. these oklahoma ponds, now, empty, dry and dusty. in southwest oklahoma, howel mcknight fighting to save fish from his shrinking ponds. he's moving them by hand by deeper water. >> it's tragic. we're losing the water and all of the fish. >> reporter: high temperatures are scorching much of the midwest. >> for the first time in 27 years, the swans usa cup here in minnesota has been postponed due to heat. >> reporter: in nebraska,
they're even throwing ice in the pools. that heat wave is steadily moving east. on a day where you could use a swim, city budget cuts have forced the closure of all pools in ft. worth. anyone coming here for a dip will be locked out. the severe heat combinin with the drought, can spark fast-moving grass fires. texas could set yet another record for the worst fire season, ever. and it's more than just uncomfortable. heat-related deaths are number one killer -- heat is weather-related killer in the u.s. if you're out in these conditions today, make sure to hydrate. experts say drink two bottles per hour to avoid heat stroke. and stay inside. robin? >> all right, yunji, thank you. sam, this feels like everybody's affected by this heat wave. yes, texas and oklahoma have never gotten out of it.
here's where the heat is in the rest of the nation, building throughout the last week. the last heat wave, this one is longer and worse. when you see numbers like 97 in minneapolis, 95 in kansas city. not a record today. what's happening there, this heat is releasing all of the water from the saturated ground. it's more humid in minneapolis than it is in new orleans. your heat index levels would be above 100 degrees. and that's brutal in this part of the country. here's where the heat is. it spreads east throughout the week. we're warming everything up. as bad as it was it gets worse this week with the h ht. josh? >> all right, sam. now, to casey anthony. she walked out of jail a free woman just after midnight on sunday morning. now, new details about her secret escape and where she might have ended up. jim avila is in orlando with the very latest. good morning to you, jim. >> reporter: good morning, josh. as the caylee memorial grows, we're learning the first clues about where her mother might be just 36 hours after her release from jail. it's a secret even from her
parents. she was welcomed to come home at least temporarily, but opted to fly out of town in the dead of night. abc news has learned that this single-engine prop plane which left orlando executive airport three hours after casey anthony's release is registered a wealthy california attorney. it may be a clue to her whereabouts or a diversion. the plane appears to have taken a route west. eventually landing at presscott at 3:00 in the morning. the only word from casey anthony was a cryptic text to her mother from her attorney's phone. >> she texted jose. was that casey on the plane? and we got, she's safe. nothing else. >> reporter: and still nothing when jose baez appeared on fox news overnight. >> is she or has she left
florida. >> reporter: wherever she is, a memorial for her daughter. an attempt to refocus the attention on the 2-year-old victim of this crime. whose body was dumped in this amp, which has become a constant memorial. >> quit talking about her. she'll disappear. just keep this little girl alive. >> i believe that she'll get her judgment day. someday. we all have to meet our maker. and that's, you know, unfortunately, that's when she'll get hers, i guess. >> reporter: those are the type of messages that frighten casey anthony's estranged parents, who do not know where their daughter is today. >> she walked out of here with 500 bucks. she does not have a place to live. she's relying on other people. >> reporter: clearly she needs the money. so far there's no word of any deals to tell her story. her attorney says that her priority now is counseling and her mental health. robin? >> all right, jim. in our next half-hour, dan abrams and nancy grace will join
us live with more. now, to the latest on the phone hacking rocking rupert murdoch's media empire. rebekah brooks arrested over the weekend. and has scotland yard resigning over the failures in the investigation. jeffrey kofman joins us this morning from london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. it's incredible. this scandal unfolding with lightning speed. rupert murdoch's number two arrested. it's fair to say, the air around murdoch himself is getting awfully thin. will where will all of this stop? rupert murdoch has often said he looked on rebekah brooks as his daughter. just a week ago, he indicated that saving her was as important to saving his global empire. but this crisis well beyond his control. brooks, former editor of his now-closed "news of the world," became so toxic, on sunday, she resigned.
on sunday she was arrested and questioned about alleged criminal activity while she was at the helm. >> it's very unusual for somebody to be arresteteby appointment on sunday. there could be operational reasons for that. maybe they're going to arrest somebody else today. >> reporter: as the news tightens, the focus turns to his murdoch's son, james. he is accused of trying toay $1 million to a soccer star. rupert murdoch hoped that james would take over the family empire that is now not clear either will survive. >> there was a particular settlement that i authorized and was said with information -- i acted on advice of executives. and lawyers. within completed investigation. and that's a matter of real regret for me personally. >> reporter: and there's more. last late night, the head of scotland yard, siriraul stephenson, became the latest casualty in this phone hacking crisis. his mistake? hiring another former "news of
the world" senior editor and failing to open inquiries in the paper while widespread allegations of illegal activity were swirling. and tomorrow, should be another dramatic day. both murdochs and rebekah brooks to appear in front of parliament to answer questions. in what could be the modern version of a public flogging. robin? >> all right, jeffrey. thank you so much. now, something that we're going to be talking for some time. >> four years at least. we're turning now to team usa's heartbreaking loss to japan in the women's world cup yesterday. the american women had been the favorites going in. if not, sentimental. of course, they never lost to japan before in 25 prior matches. but there's a first time for everything. twice japan rallied late to tie the score and sending it to penalty kicks, sometimes so cruel and agonizing. and abc's deborah roberts is in
frankfurt, where japan ron it all. good morning, deborah. >> reporter: i don't have any fingernails left after that match. in the end it was japan's moment. first asian country to ever claim a world cup title. >> it is japan's world cup. a broken-hearted usa. who thought they had it won twice, are beaten. >> reporter: japan basked in its own cinderella story. flooding the fieldldn elation. the u.s. looked on tearfully. their world cup dreams dashed. after the first half, was that psychologically sort of difficult for you all? >> no, i thought we felt confnfent the whole game leading up to the very last penalty that made them champions. >> and at a certain point, you have to give credit to japan. they scored great goals. >> all of japan, can have at least a semblance of a smile. >> reporter: commentators thought the japan suffered from a case of nevers.
they had never beaten the u.s. in competition. and had never been to a world cup final before. u.s. played it twice. never played under a strain. on their shoulders the weight of entire country still reeling from the devastating earthquake and tsunami. for the first time in four months, something for japan to celebrate. it was a remarkable win for a team overpowered in so many ways. the average height of the japanese players is only 5'4". yet, they refused to relent to the united states' intense play. just nine minutes away from a u.s. 1-0 victory, japan stunned onlookers with their first goal of the game, forcing overtime. with this header, american superstar, abby wambach led her team to a 2-1 lead. but resilient japan wouldn't give up. an agonizing shoot-out followed.
when it was said and done, the team that refused to believe in never pulled out the upset of the ages. what do you say to fans and family who cheered you on so hard? >> i think we'll say that we'll be back. this team has so much to be proud of and we have such a bright future. >> reporter: a tough, tough night for the american women. they just boarded a plane headed back home to get some much-needed rest. and as one of them told me, josh, to already begin thinning about next year. >> you have to leave they will be back, deborah. deborah roberts in frankfurt. >> i know, robin, we were both tweeting as we were watching yesterday. and you got stuck there on the bike. perhaps thinking it would be the thing that would bring it home. how many miles did you do yesterday? >> almost 20. about 29. they're doing what they can. heather said it best in deb's report. japan deserving of this victory. lot more reaction from that
country coming up. and the world cup team, the u.s. team, will be with us here in times square tomorrow. >> they were absolutely inspirational. there are many news events this morning. for the latest on them, we turn now to bob woodruff. >> this is like new orleans winning -- the saints winning the super bowl. >> after katrina. >> it's great for the towns and the cities and countries. weweegin with that dramatic scene at a rock concert just north of the border in ottawa, canada, cameras were rolling as a freak storm swept through resulting in chaos. it happened in a matter of seconds. a violent thunderstorm with ripping down the stage and three stories of scaffolding, at the ottawa bluesfest. sending the rock band cheap trick and thousands of their fans, running for cover. >> cheap trick was in the middle of their set. the stage started to felt backwards.
i've never seen anything like that before. it was pretty freaky. >> reporter: the frantic search for people. band membersrshrown off the floor. all were accounted for and okay. others weren't so lucky. >> ladies and gentlemen, please clear the park. >> reporter: part of the stage had pierced one man in the abdomen. another person reportedly broke a leg. in all, five people were seriously hurt. others were simply mixed municipal in the chaos. people were running in the pouring rain, scattered from friends and loved ones. >> the network is jammed. >> reporter: in the wake of the freak storm, a mangled mess. a drum set. chairs collapsed and scattered. like toothpicks. fans said that the band kept playing even when the dark clouds rolled in. the band later wrote on facebook, everyone is shaken up. we hope everyone is okay. negotiations over raising the nation's debt limit moved behind closed doors in washington today, with the default deadline just over two weeks away. sources say president obama and
house speaker, john boehner, are again, discussing more than $4 trillion in deficit reduction, with the speaker pushing for specific cuts to social security, medicare and medicaid. overseas, a chilling scene caught on camera. these tourists had gathered in normally shallow waters in a scenic waterfall. you see a flash flood quickly moves in, eventually carrying them away. moving them downstream. over the falls, amazingly, two people survived that plunge. and were rescued. two others remain missing. new research indicates mild brain injuries, even concussions can increase your risk for dementia and the symptoms of alzheimer's disease. one study found they were more than twice as likely to suffer from dementia in their later years. finally, pure magic at the box office. "harry potter and the deathly hallows, part 2," broke just
about every record possible this weekend, taking in nearly $169 million here in the u.s. and more than $300 million overseas. the best opening weekend of any movie ever. >> harry potter. harry potter, right here. what are you going to say? these are my cheaters. >> you got $470 million you can spare. sam, what do you say? >> i am loving it. all right. let's get to the boards. it's been a crazy time for weather. remember, all of that water is much higher than normal if you're visiting those areas, don't venture into those mountain streams in north america. this is the latest tropical system, right off the coast of florida. bret pulls into atlantic. the big story will be heavy heat from minneapolis, kansas city to dallas. everywhere in the middle of the country.
>> more from sam later. now, the latest on carmageddon. there were so many dire predictions of cars backed up for miles in los angeles. what really happened? abc's clayton sandell will tell us. >> reporter: forget the beach. the hollywood sign. the movie stars. the biggest attraction in southern california this weekend was this -- >> there it is. we got the first car. >> reporter: like blood coursing through an artery, cars brought the 405 back to life. putting an end to -- >> carmageddon. >> reporter: they're finally reopening the 405. and they're doing it 17 hours early carmageddon turned out to be the epic traffic nightmare that wasn't. heaven because people stayed off the roads. even this suspect must have gotten the message. >> the pursuit has gone on and
on. >> reporter: during a four-hour police chase, he managed to completely avoid the 405. leaving it wide-open for cyclists and skateboarding scoff laws. >> use a little common sense, fellas. rmageddon wasn't enough to scare paris hilton. by saturday, sheheas at the beach. next year, they'll have to endure another carmageddon. shutting down their beloved 405. >> it's the road to everywhere. airport, work, the east side, west side. >> reporter: but for now, these are the closing credits everyone was hoping for. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, los angeles. >> let me just say, i'm proud today. >> homefully the people will go as well for carmageddon 2. coming up -- casey anthony on to a private plane. dan abrams and nancy grace will weigh in. and a little dog with a

>> for those people saying that she's going to get a reality show, she's going to have a book, she's going to be famous, they're discounting how much anger there is against casey anthony. any major corporation is going associated with casey anthony. in any way, shape or form. i think it's going to have to be more of a fringe organization. more importantly, an organization that doesn't care what the public thinks of it at all. i think she'll get a one-time payout to do an interview. i think people will be surprised by how much backlash there will be. >> and there's been a lot of groups saying they will boycott anything that she is associated with. nancy, i want to your reaction. when she walked out a free woman. doesn't have to report to a probation officer, anything like that. what was going through your mind when you saw that, nancy, her walking out? >> well, mostly disappointment. disappointment in our justice
system. and i think that's the general sentiment. no one wishes for vigilantly justice. nobody advocates that. people who are opposed to the jury's verdict, are really seeking justice. i don't believe those people are interested in harming tot mom, casey anthony. as far as her getting deals, they're already coming in. in an interview with jose baez, he said that he's already fielding up offers, up to $1 million. so, they're going to come in. it's just like porn. nobody in church on sunday morning saying they're going to watch it but they do. so, someone's going to watch that interview. and someone's going to buy that book. and she's going to make a lot of money. end of story. >> there are some people that due process has been served. she faced a jury of her peers. case closed. everybody should just move on. is that fair to say? >> that is accurate. it's fair and trueue due process has been served.
the jury system was implemented. and just because many people disagree with the verdict, doesn't mean that due process wasn't implemented. now, she's off on her way. the next verdict w wl be by the america public. whether they want to watch her on pay-per-view or in her interview, paid interview or in her book. it will be up to us now. >> it's going to be interesting to see. you're right. people arereaying, no, no, no. when push comes to shove, it will be interesting to see what happens. dan, this is not the first high-profile acquittal. but you feel this is still different from the others. >> the one we compare this to is o.j. simpson. the world also thought, or many in the world, thought that was the wrong verdict. the difference was that o.j. simpson had a community of people. had supporters, fans from his days as an athlete, of people who were behind him, when he came out of prison. there was a significant group of people who thought he was not guilty. that's really not the case here.
meaning, there are people who are saying the justice system worked. there are people saying there was reasonable doubt. you don't have almost anyone, who say they put the wrong person on trial here, which was the case in o.j. simpson's case. even harder for her. to make it the other thing that makes this different than the o.j. simpson case is the timing of it. back in the mid-1990s, you didn't have cell phones where you could take pictures of people. >> true. >> you didn't have twitter or facebook. so, anytime anyone sees her anywhere, it's going to be accounted for. that's going to make this is totally different experience for her than someone released in the mid-1990s. nancy, when you do think we will see her again? a couple of lawsuits floating out. >> oh, yeah. we will see her again. if she honored the subpoena to come to the deposition.
the first one is by zenaida fernandez-gonzalez. that's the first one. i think that there's going to be many more. dan, i think they're going to be people around tot mom casey anthony. he had a clique. he lived in a mansion. she's going to find the same things. did you see that guy holding a sign? casey, will you marry me? enough people want to be around her for whatever bizarre reason in their minds. >> there's no question. scott peterson who is sitting on death row, still gets marriage proposals on a regular basis. so, they are people that will get marriage proposals. but it's still going to be a different situation. sure, she'll find a group of people. i'm not suggesting she's going to be a total pariah. i'm saying, when it comes to selling her story, adapting to a community, when it comes to walking into a
restaurant, i think it's going to be even worse for her than it was for o.j. >> she'll lie her way right through it. come on. her parents tried to get in touch with her. she won't even speak to her parents. and in fact, in one, last -- >> nancy, you have too many people -- >> tried to use them -- she tried to use them as media decoys when she left the jail. thank god her lawyer put his foot down on that, so george and cindy anthony wouldn't get used one last time by her. >> there are too many people out there who love nancy grace, who watch nancy grace on a regular basis, who are going to see her out there, somewhere, are going to give her a very, very hard time wherever she goes. >> well, the most important people have spoken. those were 12 members of the jury. that's all that mattered. from here on in, in my mind, it's over. she's going to start a new life with a pot of money. more than you and i will ever
make, dan. and she's going to live the sweet life the good life. she's finally got it. >> one thing that you agree on, people are ready to see this over. nancy and dan, thank you. >> thank you, robin. >> you're welcome. take care, nancy. let's go over to sam and the weather. sam? >> we'll start with heat. lot of people will say that's summer. it's more than that. this heat is persistent and it's kind of abusive in the way it stays in the middle of the country, with the combination of humidity. let me show you the numbers here. dallas, this could be a big day for you. if you break your 16-days, consecutive days, it would be a shallow victory. it will only be 99. but that heat roars on this week. minneapolis, the heat and humidity. it feels like it's above 100 degrees. and it will be that way all week. chicagoland into the 90s. kansas city. and some of the heat
all of that weather was brought to you by petsmart. oh, robin? >> okay there, sam. next, the toughest chihuahua on the block. paco the crime-fighting pooch here live in times square. i know he doesn't look it, but he is. charlie! !i haven't seen you for awhile. wow! you must ome here a lot. acacally, this is ur first time.
